Mentoring to Access Corps AmeriCorps Program
Beginning in Fall 2013, the Mentoring to Access Corps (MAC), a Michigan Nonprofit Association program in partnership with Mentor Michigan and Michigan Campus Compact, will enroll and place thirty five full-time AmeriCorps members with youth mentoring programs, colleges and universities across Michigan. Mentoring AmeriCorps members will increase the quantity and quality of youth mentoring relationships while also impacting college-going rates and career readiness for hundreds of K-12 youth in Michigan. Campus AmeriCorps members will increase college access for high schoolyouth in grades 9-12 who come from low-income families or who have parents who did not attend college (i.e. first generation college-going students).
